Flirting In The Shadows

Flirting in the shadows, with a girl who has no past,
Love never was in question, "Please come with me" is all she asks.
Flirting in the shadows, with a girl who has no smile.
Her long hair may look careless, but those dark eyes beguile.


Oh we worked so hard to build a dam
That would stem the dreams of a desperate man.
But hope can disappear like morning mist.
Still sweet sixteen and you've never been kissed

Oh we worked so hard to build a dam
That would stem the dreams of a desperate man
But hope can disappear like morning mist.
Still sweet sixteen and you've never been kissed.


Flirting in the shadows, with a girl who looks insane.
Just want to keep her company, don't even know her name.
Flirting in the shadows, with a girl who cannot sleep
Tossing stones in midnight pools, discover those pools are deep.

Flirting in the shadows, with a girl who knows no end.
Perhaps she's passed this way before, the night wind as her friend.
Flirting in the shadows, with a girl who's make believe
Just when my mind is made up, I turn to find her tugging at my sleeve.
